I was generally unimpressed with Antalya and even more so with the Marmara Antalya. This was one of the most expensive places I stayed on my trip through Turkey and definitely the worst value for the money. For the same amount I stayed in an all-inclusive 8 room boutique near Oludeniz and had an awesome experience. The hotel is cold and uninviting, the staff is always busy and not helpful at all when I asked for directions or assistance, the pool was like bathwater, and the beach is just a cliff. The breakfast buffet was included and was decent, but that is about the only thing this place has going for it. The pool waitstaff is lazy and I actually had to go get myself a drink even though there seemed to be several waitstaff wandering aimlessly at all times.
I never got this from any of the reviews I read so I'll state it in this one - Antalya is a big beach town which reminded me of South Beach but without any good clubs, culture, or an actual easy to access beach. Antalya is a city of almost 1 million and don't even try to drive your rental car here - it is insane. There are much better parts of Turkey to go visit - skip Antalya and especially this hotel.
